INstall problems from XP to Vista Tags: Configuration Windows Vista Windows XP Last response: February 25, 2009 1:41 PM in Windows Vista Share alcattle February 23, 2009 9:30:53 AM trying to get my rebuilt system to a level I can use the stuff I have and want to with it. Machine was working with a clean install of XP on a new HD. Replacing the HD is where the hardware problems started. I bought the OEM Vista 64 dvd from Newegg. Liked I said, it was working accessing the net and all. So I put in the DVD and start the install, you can't upgrade with the disk. it goes through the process and I now have Vista installed. Problems: did not read my 8800GTS Gfx card, using Standard VGA. Sees the network card but not the network. I tried to update the drivers but Vista say they are good and won't cooperate. So can anyone help a Vista n00b work out the kinks?

Check in Device Manager to see what hasn't properly installed, as far as the 8800GTS get the latest drivers from Nvidia and Uninstall any drivers first already installed.

Did you format the HDD? m 0 l alcattle February 23, 2009 7:25:51 PM yes the drive was formatted, it had XP on it and was working fine. I will find the MB disc, and try that. I will also give you what errors it shows. I d/l the latest nVidia driver but it did not like the file I put in. I will try again with a different burner. m 0 l Related resources Dual-boot problems - Vista does not recognize XP upon Vista install - Forum Having problems Installing XP over vista!!! - Forum Dual Boot Vista/XP - problem installing XP - Forum Problem re-installing windows vista/xp - Forum Triple boot when xp & win 7 install first.....vista later - Forum Can't find your answer ?
